Facelifted 2016 Lotus Evora Spotted in Spy Photos


Quote:
Lotus is looking to revamp its Evora sports car in time for the Geneva Motor Show and we have the first look at it right here, thanks to our sneaky spy photographers.

The changes to the model may be subtle as the car company is going through some financial difficulty, but we can clearly see some important modifications to the lightweight sports car. It looks like the front bumper is getting a new look, while the side-sills have been redesigned, likely in a way to improve entry and exit of the vehicle.

The lights also have a revised design, but under all that sheetmetal you can expect a lighter vehicle, with more power. The Toyota sourced V6 engine is still expected to be put to use, but it will be retuned to make more power.

Expect all the details to be cleared up and shared at the Geneva Motor Show.

For some reason I was expecting a more radical facelift, but I guess the budget only allows for limited bodywork changes, primarily the bumpers.

Time will soon tell. I hope the new lighter Sparco seats are as comfortable the Recaros.

The grill mesh looks like it was stolen from the mclaren factory, but I really think I like it. I'd have to see it in person though. The current Evora looks kinda tame in pictures but awesome in person. This one manages to look more aggressive in pictures, so I am curious what'll really look like.
